Description

Continuing its commitment to developing new works, TheatreWorks, the nationally-acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, will once again assemble playwrights and composers from across the nation for its 2014 NEW WORKS FESTIVAL, headed up by recently appointed New Works Director Giovanna Sardelli. Among this year’s highlights are a new work by Rajiv Joseph, Pulitzer Prize Finalist and award-winning author of The North Pool and Broadway’s Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, and a musical look at Norman Rockwell’s America by local playwright Lynne Kaufman and PIXAR/NPR composer Alex Mandel. The thirteenth annual Festival runs August 9 - 17 at TheatreWorks at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto, with multiple staged readings of five new plays and musicals, a panel discussion, live outdoor music, and food trucks offering gourmet dining al fresco.
